Since it's YOUR SHOW, we invited Renee Buchanan Porter, RN, CPNP from The Children's Hospital and Anne Warhover, CEO of the Colorado Health Foundation, to talk about childhood obesity.

The Colorado Health Foundation gave Colorado a D+ when it comes to children's health in the state. More than 14 percent of Colorado's kids are considered obese.

Topics discussed included caloric intake vs. portion sizes, getting kids to play outside, forming good eating habits, contributing factors to obesity and taking away recess as a punishment.

Amy McCloud Padgett, Sarah Stine-Sarabia, Manda Hughes, Tammi Forrest Dixon, Liz Meagher, Annette Elkins, Monique Lucero and Angela from all participated in the conversation.

If you have a topic you would like to talk about, YOUR SHOW would love to hear from you. There are many ways to participate. Email us at Find us on Facebook ( or Twitter (

Each week, it's your ideas, your thoughts and your questions that lead to YOUR SHOW.
